This is the first of the style I have ever done. The wood is exhibition grade Birdseye maple. I call this finish aqua burst. It is a very beautiful deep-sea look with the 3-D depth to match in the green… It utilizes iridium point Germany nib and comes with a lovely window box. Because this is the first one of these I have ever done there are some slight cosmetic imperfections where the wood meets the coupling… It is shown in the pictures. If you are unable to see it in the pictures that is how small and insignificant the flaw is, however I am a perfectionist and want to only charge full price for my best work so I am discounting this piece from $70-$50 because the wood is not completely flush with the gold coupling. This is a steal of a deal for this piece! I hope you enjoy!
